Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I added a way joining an existing cycle path and a road.

This is the way that I added: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/158514786

It shows that its end nodes are also parts of other ways, and it has also got the "bicycle=designated" attribute on.

Yet when I go on www.openrouteservice.org and try to do a bicycle route from say

Pos@: -0.769655 53.227528


Pos@: -0.802614 53.222493

by bicycle, then it doesn't route using my new way. It should not go all the way east to Harby!

i.e., should probably be significantly less than 10km, not 18.9km.

Can anyone please let me know what I have failed to do or done wrong?

Thank you

http://www.openrouteservice.org/ says "OSM-Data for Routing: 11.03.12" and the first entry of http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/158514786/history says "Edited at: Sun, 08 Apr 2012 12:16:10 +0000".

Why is that a problem?

Because the data OpenRouteService.org uses is one month older than your addition to the OSM database.
